Hey Guys and Gals, are you Looking for an awesome Nespolino Liqueur Recipe? You now have no reason to look any further! You have just found what you have been looking for, this is a recipe for the most awesome tasting Nespolino Liqueur Recipe in the world.


Step 1
  • 200 g medlar seeds
  • 1 liter of Grappa
Step 2
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
Step 3
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • some rose petal



A Grappa Nespolino is prepared by macerating 200 g of medlar seeds for about 10 days in the sun, so that they are peeling spontaneously.

The peeled seeds are then placed in your glass bottle together with one liter of Grappa.

Step 2

Boil the water in the saucepan then add sugar while stirring to prevent the sugar from burning. When the sugar is dissolved and the sugar water is clear turn off the fire let cool then add to liqueur jar.

Step 3

Finally add a vanilla pod and some rose petals, close your jar and its ready for the ages.

Aging Straining, filtering, and Drinking your Nespolino Liqueur

The maceration meaning the time the leaves are soaking in the grappa will last one month and the aging process six months.

After 1 month carefully strain the liquid through several layers of cheesecloth.

It helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.

Once you get to the point of straining out the pulp and rind, gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the liquid and juice.

If you still need to you can strain your Nespolino Liqueur one more time through a coffee strainer.

Place back into your aging container and let age for another 6 months.

Finnaly add water to taste if needed.


I am listing the simplest utensils that you can use, the ones mom should have already have in the kitchen.
– A large glass jar (I used a 3 liter jar) 
 large plastic bowl
– measuring cups (liquid and dry)
– metal strainer
